    Squanto Sez

    Says the mime to the mirror,
    “Watch me, do as I say,
    Let’s go shopping tomorrow,
    It’s a new holiday”
    Buy a teddy-bear and give thanks to your ‘brer because
    Squanto’s alive!
    And the word on the street is,
    "…Squanto says, “Hi…"

    Squanto says, "Hello!"
    Squanto says, "Bonjour!"
    Squanto says, "Hola!"

    Says familial relation,
    To the secondary one,
    “Don’t you think little Jon-Jon,
    looks like Jesus’ son?”
    She had better pair her thanks with her prayers because
    Squanto’s alive!
    And the headliners are all reading,
    "…Squanto says, "Hi…”

    Squanto says, "Shalom"
    Squanto says, "Salaam"
    Squanto says, "Salamé"
    Squanto says…

    Says the boss to the servant,
    With a backhanded smirk,
    As he minces his marrow,
    “Have some leftover turk’”
    He had better share his spares with the Saharans because
    Squanto’s alive!
    And the birds are all a-twittering,
    "…Squanto says, “OY! YO! WHAT'S UP?…”

    Squanto says, "Jambo!"
    Squanto says, "Ni-hao!"
    Squanto says, "Ciao, ciao!"
    Squanto says, "Konnichiwa!"
    Squanto says, "Zdorovo!"
    Squanto says, "Anh-yeong-ha-se-yo!
    Squanto says, "Mabuhay!"
    Squanto says, "Kia ora!"
    Squanto says, "Szia!"
    Squanto says, "Namaste!"
    Squanto says, "Aloha!"
    Squanto says…
